Broward County Schools Attendance Policy:

A student who has had at least five unexcused absences, or absences for which the reasons are unknown, within a calendar month, or 10 unexcused absences, or absences for which the reasons are unknown, within a 90-calendar-day period, may be exhibiting a pattern of non-attendance (F.S.1003.26 (1) (b)) and the School Board of Broward County, Policy 5.5.

This course is fast-paced and demanding. One topic builds on another. Daily participation is a must.

Exams, quizzes, and homework may include questions on material presented only in class, so performance on these indirectly reflects attendance. I do not reteach previous lessons. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to review the material covered, complete the assignments missed and if you require additional help see me or attend tutoring after school.

Tardies – In accordance with ATC student handbook.
